Whisper 03:41
Inside I called me "Nigger" finger on the trigger what a cost to me in soul My shyness made a muddle a thing so home to murder had I found my place? ​ I took me for a runner but flat out in the gutter I held out for victory sure the real end to my war ​ and this could not hurt me more this could not hurt me more this could not hurt me more ​ Underneath and through me something whispered to me what I had to answer for I looked up from the floor ​ This cannot hurt me more this cannot hurt me more this cannot hurt me more

Time Bomb 04:53
Can you let go of something you know like a number everyday spaces jamming up the flow maybe I'll tire soon of the mire of longing what's in the place there couldn't be alone ​ Christ, its a long day out ​ Wasn't making good time when I made up my mind to take a wrong way taking back steps two at a time ​ If you put me off again what would the new mess that you see before you do.. you never know, you never know ​ Forces at work know me for working like a whipped dog are they turning a tide to see if I'll ride another time bomb ​ But if you never come 'round again What would the new mess that you see before you do.. you never know, you never know ​ Got me one time, I give in for love got me two times, I give in for nothing ​ Living with you I found twenty new ways to be lonely I say it's high time to pray for a new day Daddy, I was right to take a year of my life to think it over and stranger than true, it faded my hope for you ​ But if you never come 'round again What would the new mess that you see before you do.. you never know, you never know ​ Hangin' at old Simon's over the avenue all my keys out could you see it from my side.. but maybe you won't

S'Cool 03:55
Let me pick me up I’m down, for now We can ride all night no load will haunt you the time is right, the time is right now I been crazy Don’t care where we go the night, the hour, glow Feel me feel you get off and high We got it right, we got it right now Turn away babe and I forget your face And there is no wrong ‘cause it’ll never be right (so what do we say..?) S’cool, s’cool, s’cool, s’cool, s’cool….

No Disgrace 05:32
Hey, got the feel like you’ll never be sober pain in all you are like some head in a vice You got glass hands, cheat sheets, a crazy mouth and so what Combusting in a ragged hole every devil knows a bully slap and where are all your big sisters now In this place, no disgrace only a glow Everyone hears the sound some back down some ride the wrecking ball Say you don’t mind Say you don’t mind, for real Say you don’t mind Say you don’t mind Could you love a dream exploded that smashed your heart or a hope that died on the vine In this place, no disgrace only a glow Everyone hears the sound some back down some ride the wrecking ball

If I wanted, I could be the one poster honey pink and wide smile like a monkey If all I could want fit in two arms If I live long ‘cause its all I can do not to drown… No time to be just… no time to be just anyone Monster heavy lightnin’ slick and tricked out atomic Monster heavy fearsome deep If I went along tearing no walls or fevers down well I shouldn’t be born I couldn’t go on Make true my old lie if I can last that long oh scene surreal How could you be just… no time to be just anyone Monster heavy lightnin’ slick and tricked out atomic Monster heavy fearsome deep

Special Dark 04:10
This is where we start In a pool of steam and shadow Turn to honey my will of steel When there’s nothing that you want Nothing to lose I come for love alone faith like the ocean warm tides waiting I come for love alone my secret’s out, my secret’s out I’ll go away with the sound your brittle heart makes Take only everything take back what you want, if you can my love my love oh my love I come for love alone faith like the ocean warm tides waiting I come for love alone my secret’s out my secret’s out

J'aurais tout qui est noir

I couldn’t count my fortune My fortune sits all day in my apple of, in my apple of a love See me today, I been worn away with floating away he oughta know Going around and around going around ‘cause I hate what you aren’t but you are the king of the world In your root you shoot like stars and you feel so fat, like a diplomat and you rule me so fine over my line You like me some days then take my money away won’t you obey?

Modern Love 04:44

about

"The debut solo album by Marilyn Carino, formerly of Mudville, is a startling meld of sonic and lyric contrasts. These nine songs, with their downbeat tempos, shimmering, layered, sometimes angular textures, and crisscrossing rhythmic and drenched-in-soul melodic architectures, swallow the listener whole -- albeit lovingly."
- Thom Jurek, AllMusic Guide (four stars)
